Did Leonardo DiCaprio really deserve an Oscar for the "Best Actor in a Leading Role" for The R… by Rahul Chakraborty
Answer by Rahul Chakraborty:
Yes,the answer is yes,actually Oscar depends a lot on the competition and the effort you put in a film..DiCaprio went through extreme tough conditions and his acting was done in a methodical way and Academy prefers method acting always..De Niro won for Raging Bull,Nicholson One Flew Over the cuckoo’s nest,Al Pacino Scent of a women or Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot or in There will be blood…
I can tell you a similar story..2003 was one of the toughest year in Academy’s history for Best Actor Choice..Most of the nominees career best performances were there,Nicolas Cage for Adaptation,Daniel Day Lewis For Gangs of New york, Jack Nicholson About Schmidt,Micheal Caine the Quiet American,but eventually the award went to the actor who went hardest way of Method Acting,Adrien Brody ..
Academy Best Actor award is not always about your performance on-screen,it’s more about total performance you’re putting for an role,how much struggle you’re going through and finally on the competition..
So,keeping all aspects in mind Leo deserved the Oscar..
